Experimental Identification of Asymmetric Information: Evidence on Crop Insurance in the Philippines

Snaebjorn Gunnsteinsson
Asymmetric information imposes costs on a wide range of markets and may explain why some important markets, such as most agricultural insurance markets, have failed to develop. It is hard to empirically identify the different dimensions of asymmetric information but doing so is crucial for improving efficiency and solving market failures. I develop a new experimental methodology and apply it to study asymmetric information in crop insurance in the Philippines. Using a combination of preference...

The Impact of Taxes and Wasteful Government Spending on Giving

Roman M. Sheremeta & Neslihan Uler
We examine how taxes impact giving to charity and how this relationship is affected by the degree of wasteful government spending. In our model, government collects a flat-rate tax on income net of charitable donations and redistributes part of the tax revenue. The rest of the tax revenue is wasted. Consistent with the previous literature, the model predicts that a higher tax rate increases charitable donations. Surprisingly, the model shows that a higher degree of...

Behavioral Sources of the Demand for Carbon Offsets: An Experimental Study

Kai-Uwe Kuhn & Neslihan Uler
Voluntary carbon offset schemes have sprung up in the last decade offering individuals opportunities to neutralize their own carbon footprint. These schemes strongly appeal to the personal responsibility of individuals in reducing the carbon emissions they cause. In this paper we report on a controlled laboratory experiment to better understand the behavioral motivations driving the purchase of carbon offsets, i.e., payments towards the reduction of damages to the environment. We show that the opportunity to...

When Income Depends on Performance and Luck: The Effects of Culture and Information on Giving

Pedro Rey-Biel, Roman M. Sheremeta & Neslihan Uler
We study how giving depends on income and luck, and how culture and information about the determinants of others’ income affect this relationship. Our data come from an experiment conducted in two countries, the US and Spain, that have different beliefs about how income inequality arises. We find that when individuals are informed about the determinants of income, there are no cross-cultural differences in giving. However, when uninformed, Americans give less than the Spanish, and...

The Effects of Using a Research-Based Reading Program that Incorporates Real Life Application for Students with Significant Disabilites to Improve Reading Comprehension Achievement

(:Unkn) Unknown
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of using a researched-based reading program that incorporates real-life/authentic application to improve reading vocabulary comprehension development of students with significant disabilities. The participants in this study were enrolled in a private special education school located in Baltimore City during the 2016-2017 school years. There were a total of nine students in this study. All the students had individualized educational plans (IEPs) and behavioral intervention plans...

The Effects of Weight Training and Body Fat

Miguel-Rikki Sye
The purpose of this study is to examine if one semester of high school weight training can significantly improve adolescence body fat percentage and Body Mass Index (BMI). Subjects in this study are all male high school students ranging in ages 14 to 18 years. Data was gathered in this study using a quasi-experimental design with a pre assessment and a post assessment of student’s body fat percentage and BMI. The results of this study...

The Impact of Increased Technology Integration on the Achievement of Students

Rebecca Crowley Danso
The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to examine the impact of increased technology integration on the math achievement of students in a general education second-grade class. The study compared the spring MAP math scores of 19 second-graders that received traditional math instruction and 23 second-graders that received traditional math instruction supplemented with increased technology integration. For a period of 44 sessions over four months, students in the experimental group used the DreamBox math application...

Making Echoes: Utilizing the Markov Project in the Composition of Sound

Eric Czekner
This work was designed as an experiment in the unique ways that Markov chains can be used in the composition of sound. During the construction of the project, two overall methods of using Markov chains were proposed; direct-composition and indirect-composition. Both methods were typically found to have satisfying results in terms of harmonic content, though some instances required influence from a human-composer. This further pushed the question of how much influence an artist should or...

Dedication - University of the Cumberlands

Lacy Wilson
A publication involving all aspects of the design process - including writing, photography, and layout. The goal of the publication is to reach prospective students and alumni of the University so they can meet current people associated with the school and see the changes that have been made.

The Effect of Nontherapeutic Equine Interaction on College Equestrian Students’ Anxiety Levels

Annie Donovan
The purpose of this study was to determine if a nontherapeutic equine interaction would affect anxiety levels in college equestrian students. The measurement tool was the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. The study involved seven college equestrian students taking an anxiety pretest, having an equine interaction, and taking an anxiety posttest. Mean anxiety levels were lower after students experienced an equine interaction. Research in this area should continue as there is very little research on the effect...

The Effects of Repeated Reading on Oral Reading Fluency of Third Grade Students

Brittany Marano
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of repeated readings on the oral reading fluency of third grade students. This study utilized a quasi-experimental design that included a pretest and treatment, followed by a posttest. The 19 participants in this study attended an urban public school in Maryland during the 2016-2017 school year. This study hypothesized that gains in fluency, as reflected in changes in the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Literacy Skills...

The Effects of Positive Behavior Strategies with Students that are Behaviorally Challenged or Diagnosed with an Emotional Disability

Deidra Fellows
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of positive behavior support and behavior specific praise on Emotionally Disabled or behaviorally challenged students and determine if those supports would result in an increase of school appropriate behavior within the classroom setting. The measurement tool in this study was a behavior point sheet and behavior spe cific praise documented on the point sheet. This study, which included four participants (N = 4) used a...
